Melinda's comment to Joe Grimaldi; "Yea, we met a few years ago. Do you still run the VFW?" refers to their first encounter at the VFW in the "Pilot." Where Mel helped deliver his deceased wife message; that their safety deposit key was left in her favorite jacket.
(Melinda gets home and hears Jim talking)
Jim: Are you here, huh? I wish I knew. I don't even know if you can hear me, but... I want to tell you that I'm sorry. If there was anything else, I could have tried, if there was any way to save you, I would have done it, I promise. But you... you were so badly hurt. I knew you were gonna die, I could see it in your eyes. (Melinda is hiding in the hallway) Leaving you there...like that was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I'm not real good at this. My wife would know what to say to you. She knows how to handle grief, she knows how to handle loss. Me, not so much. For so many people... she knows how to make a difference. I'm not sure I do, in the grand scheme of things, but... Look, for whatever it's worth, accept my apology for what it is. If you want to punish me, here I am. But do not take it out on the people around me or the people I love.
(Melinda walks down the stairs slowly and shuts the door so he could hear her get inside)
Melinda: Jim, I'm home.
Jim (to the ghost): That's her. (To Melinda) Honey, I'll be down in a minute.
Melinda: This ghost is not in the mood to talk; he's all about revenge.
Jim: Mel, this is wrong, okay? I don't need to be protected. I don't need to be treated like a child!
Melinda: I was not treating you like a child. I was actually looking out for you a little, like you do for me.
Jim: You don't let me look out for you.
Melinda: Joe, Joe Grimaldi?
Joe: Yea. Melinda right? Ah, ah, ah, Jim Clancy's wife?!
Melinda: Yea! We met a few years ago. Do you still run the VFW?
Joe: I volunteer there now. However, I own a landscaping business, yah know. I keep busy.
